RBTH staff

Russians and Americans – completely different species or two sides of the same coin? The job of the multinational English-language team at RBTH is to explain Russia to an American audience through articles and opinion texts, but sometimes the best insights come from the conversations we have among ourselves or from our own experiences. This blog is our opportunity to share those insights with you, our readers. We will have a new post every Tuesday, and on Fridays, we will use this blog space to respond to the questions and concerns of our readers. If you have an idea for our blog, feel free to write us at US@rbth.ru.

A question of words

A question of words

May 8, 2014 Ajay Kamalakaran, RBTH
